The design of an experimental device (cold billet head) for determining the forces of extraction from the mold of a continuous casting machine of copper alloy billets is proposed. The expediency of monitoring the temperature of the measuring element on which the base with strain gauges is made is shown. The temperature of the measuring element is controlled by a thermocouple mounted on the axis of the cold billet head, which is the place for averaging the temperature over the cross-section of the temperature compensator and the measuring element. It is shown that at current levels of overcoming the frictional force of rest and the sliding friction force (graphite - bronze pair), the cross-sectional area of the base should be 5.33 10−4 m2. It is shown that the effort to overcome the static friction force exceeds the efforts to overcome the sliding friction force by 2.1–2.3 times.
